Paper was discovered in China in the second century AD. Papier-mâché, French for "chewed paper", is made using paper and some kind of adhesive, in our case, flour and water. Papier-mâché, even though is a French word, was invented in China. It was a good way to re-use paper which was expensive at that time and not easily available.In China, papier mache was used to make helmets which they toughened by many layers of lacquer, a kind of polish! Once your Ganesha Mask dries you will see how hard and tough the material feels.
